I mean, I cannot give this book anything less than 5 stars. My heart is glowing! View all 13 comments. A Week to Be Wicked is a sweet, humorous, and entertaining historical romance story. There were many good and bad things happened along the way. Sometimes they made me laugh, but they got me frustrated the other times.
The romance between them made my heart melt though, and seeing them finally could be happy together made me happy, too.

What worked for me: It was an easy read. There was nothing particularly complex a A Week to Be Wicked is a sweet, humorous, and entertaining historical romance story. There was nothing particularly complex about the plot, and it only took little time to finish it.
There were plenty of steamy sexy times and they were explosive—incredibly HOT!
The ending and the sweet HEA did me right! It was so beautiful that Colin loved Minerva the way she was. I was blown away! What didn't work for me: Both Colin and Minerva behaved childishly at times. They thought and acted in a very immature way like in the scene where Colin started to lie to the Fontleys family and Minerva reluctantly went along with his story.
But later, Mr. Fontley found out the truth, Minerva was angry with Colin and they began to blame each other. I was as much disappointed as frustrated at both of them! I wish these things never happened in this book. Fortunately, he could redeem himself in the end. I felt so irritated with them! Despite the fact that the story was quite slow and remotely boring in some parts, it was a pretty light-hearted story overall.

Here's what my "coming out" season would have been like: Oh, the most notorious rake in town just made her laugh There she goes with him out on the veranda - without a chaperone I hope she enjoys living with her spinster aunt for the rest of her life.
A bad-boy in pain? That's I'm a sucker for a charming rake. That's like female kryptonite! Even our heroine, Minerva, who is super intelligent and cynical isn't immune: As he's related his story, a veritable fount of emotion has welled in her chest.
Sadness, sympathy. Her womb somehow became involved He's a broken man.. He needs you You can heal him Minerva is my favorite heroine too. She is constantly reading, is super smart, and embarks on some sexual exploration with the hottie "in the name of science. It is hilarious, cute, and full of ooey-gooeyness.
Plus, sex, and dinosaurs. It has it all. Nerd Words Are Sexy!!! And the way you pronounce all those polysyllabic words? Makes me rock hard, every time. I love math. I loved school and still love learning. This story is full of adventure and imagination. Colin and Minerva strike a deal. If he helps her journey to her geology symposium, she will marry him temporarily so he can receive the money for his birthright. Most of the story is their journey to Edinburgh. They are constantly pretending to be other people, and it is hilarious!
Their relationship in the beginning is beyond entertaining. They are constantly bantering back and forth Colin is always calling her by the wrong name, and I laughed every time! He is a spoiled rich guy on the outside, but very intelligent because he can maneuver through many different adventures. My Colin: How do you sleep at night?
She is a female geologist studies rocks who is determined to become recognized. She has discovered a rare fossil and because she is passionate about what she does, she wants the world to know about it.
My Minerva: I suggest you find the stones to deal with it. There is so much laughing in this book, and yet there is also so much tenderness. When Min and Colin fall in love, it is so beautiful!!!!! Certainty becomes you. It ends in triumph. Thank you, Susanne for recommending this book to me!
This is my first Tessa Dare book, and I am sold for life. She does a fabulous teaser for the next book, and I am super excited to read it! Find me on View all 34 comments. Dec 19, NMmomof4 rated it really liked it Shelves: I really enjoyed this! I think this author is definitely one of my favorites for her characters and witty banter in historical romances! If only she would have more closure and epilogues I enjoy throwing in the occasional hr to mix things up with my contemporary romances, as to hopefully help prevent possible book funks.
This is Minerva 4. This is Minerva and Colin's story. The story starts with Minerva confronting Colin about the idea of him proposing to her sister. She doesn't want that match to happen, and she comes up with a proposition to fake an elopement with her instead. She needs to get to Scotland for a symposium to present her findings of an ancient footprint, and he needs people to believe he has married to get his inheritance early.
They embark on their journey, and it is a wild one. There are crazy stories being told, highway men chasing them, new identities being made, some sexy times, and some sweet moments This alternated between focusing on Minerva and Colin in 3rd person narrative with some side characters thrown in as well.
Overall Pace of Story: I never skimmed and I thought it flowed well. The ending was a little too abrupt for my tastes tbh. I really liked him. He was damaged from his past, and tried to cope in whatever way he could.
I appreciated how he cared for the h and came to love her so much. I really liked her. She was smart and witty, but I would've liked for her to stand up for herself with others a little more at times she was great with the H.
Sadness level: Yes view spoiler [The H does push away at first, and they both pursue the relationship at times. They have some good tension, chemistry, and scenes -- but not so much it takes away from the story.
Descriptive sex: Kind of, but mild view spoiler [The h has a colleague that the H gets jealous of, but it is mild. No view spoiler [There is a scene at the beginning where the h goes to the H's residence and he is half dressed and she finds that there is a woman with him, but no descriptive details. No Separation: No Possible Triggers: Mild view spoiler [The h was a virgin, and the H was with many OW before the h hide spoiler ] Closure: This didn't have enough of a glimpse into their future for me!
Why, oh why couldn't we have a jump ahead epilogue?! I would reluctantly call this a HEA, even though I wanted more view spoiler [they are just about to get married hide spoiler ]. View all 17 comments. The Series: Not all young ladies are looking forward to seasons, balls, comings out, love matches - or any match at all, for that matter! How do young misses c 5 Wickedly Feel Good Stars! Welcome to Spindle Cove! On the surface Spindle Cove seems to be the kind of place Mothers can bring their daughters to prepare for their debuts.
Again, this is on the surface. But what Spindle Cove really is, is a place where these young ladies can be themselves.
This Story: My Review: Colin is so vulnerable, and he hides that vulnerability behind his sense of humor. Joking his way through any situation, never even considering the possibility he might fail at something Inside Colin there's a nightmare so deep, so tragic, that I couldn't help but feel that he was just one short step away from a breakdown.
He's strong, don't get me wrong, and maybe I'm totally off in how I'm reading him, but regardless Thankfully, he has Minerva, an amazing heroine who cares little for what society thinks of her. She's accepted her "spinster" title, and has nothing to lose.
So why not live her dream? Fortunate for her, she has Colin to help her do precisely that! Apart they're wonderful, together they're perfect! The Bottom Line: I absolutely love the idea behind this series!
What a fun, unique place to be, Spindle Cove. This had me giggling: For that matter, Matthew, Mark, Luke, John. He needed to reach back to the Old Testament for this. Methuselah and Job. And there are women in the Bible, you know.
As I recall it, they were trouble, every last one Dare, Tessa. View all 43 comments. Mar 23, Aileene rated it really liked it Shelves: I have been curious about this genre. But I avoided it. Well, just take a look at the covers of every historical romance books.
Yes, I'm not afraid to admit, that at times, I can be skin deep in choosing my books. I love a good cover. Esp if it catches my attention at first glance. I also have this thinking that everything about this genre would be outdated.
It's something similar to these: Would you rather play this whe So. Would you rather play this when you can have this? Yes, I'm an R. Not to mention sexy times. I cringe at the thought of their very outdated, boring and old fashioned coupling. So, you see, I did have reasons. But being a member of Goodreads comes with the opportunity to meet other readers who are not limited to what you read only.
These people are cunning. They influence. They gang up on you. Enter Joanita, my book recommender. Jess who instigated the "Let's read together " and of course, not the very least, Alp, the accomplice.
Because of them, I was more excited to get my V HR-card punched. My Jess and Alp in this adventure. So, off I go to my first journey with my precioussssss. On to the review. The story was pretty SOS same old story. Ah, ah, ah, not done yet - the author, Ms Dare, branded this story with her unique style.
She is bloody brilliant and a mischief maker that after turning few pages in, I was hooked. I'll be honest here, at first I was truly reluctant to start. That can't be real. This is not my genre, right? Coz I did - promise The plot. I want you to read the blurb to get a good picture what the plot is all about. I try my hardest not to say anything at the risk of spoiling the story or even say something measly because I want you guys to experience every single bit first hand. Main characters Minerva - one of the three Highwood sisters who live in Spindle Cove and the different of 'em all.
Colin - the Romeo who wreaks havoc anywhere he goes.

Together these two have created a very memorable journey where they find the ultimate love whilst facing different challenges the fate decided to throw. I fell in love with this couple. They were funny. They were perfect, be together or separated. And they balanced each other out. Let me just say that I was ensnared. The way they danced around each other. Their snark at each other. It was beautiful to read! This cheeky but charming devil had me laughing non stop but squeezed my heart when I got to know him in deeper level.
He was very good in blurring his susceptibility by poking fun at everything. He made their one week journey adventurous and full of passion. But deep inside him, a scar that couldn't heal and I truly believe that he's just within a stone's throw of falling apart. My type of heroine, who doesn't care what others think. She's got the smarts and every word that comes out of her mouth holds water. I adore her. She was truly incredible.
I loved the plot. I loved the characters. I loved the settings. I loved the secondary characters. Heck, I even adored Mrs Highwood, the witch. So, Ms Joanita, I thank you for this adventure. You gave me a beautiful ring book that will definitely start my journey to Regency Romance. Giving it 4 No-cumming-no-clenching-no-winking-no-giggling-nothing-that-made-me-cringe Stars Shout out to these beautiful women: Jess and Alp.

Yes there are parts completely unbelievable and twists rather roll-eyes worthy - of course. But you know what? That's okay, because what Min and Colin are offering us? That's a tale - a show of deception, the triumph of the lies - and that's hilarious.
Yes the plot is predictable and we run int "When a girl trudged through the rain at midnight to knock at the Devil's door, the Devil should at least have the depravity - if not the decency - to answer. There's also several damn hot scenes and if Colin's personality has been already seen in other novels, well, he's fucking awesome in this role of the sarcastic, infuriating, devilish, and somehow delusional Lord.
As for Minerva, well, she's pretty amazing. Moreover, the scientific similes of Minerva and Colin completely cracked me up. Yes and thank you and may I have some more. Yeah, I know, I'm not some investigator. Perhaps I'm delusional.
But still. Because when a reaction or a sentence seems dripping with cheese, that's always followed by something which makes fool of it. Colin is being completely overdramatic? Colin wants to offer Minerva his ring as a sign of love? A long time. She laughed. I could add some examples but then, I'd spoilt the story too much. Maybe I'm wrong, I'm just a random reader after all, but it pleases me to think that Tessa Dare is able to do that. I guess you'll have to make your own opinion about it.
Yes it awfully looks like instalove. Because there's no denying that falling in love in a week is instalove. But then, I strangely didn't care that much, as I saw this book as a fairy tale. A wicked and silly journey into the foolish heart of mine. And you know what? A day after finishing my read I can still feel the butterflies. So much would only be polite. I must confess that I wanted my HEA. I was shipping Colin and Minerva like crazy and despite the fact that Colin's transformation can lead to awkward moments, well, I was smiling so big it hurts.
I think I may be a romantic after all. Don't tell anyone. In a nutshell: Here's a somehow predictable romance book, where we find characters who fall in love pretty quickly, whose comments are sometimes a bit cheesy, and where some situations will make you roll your eyes something fierce, yet it was a page-turner and I laughed and giggled - GIGGLED so much.
Not to mention the steamy scenes. Did I talk about that? As guilty I can feel about that, it was a complete enjoyment. I'm ruined. For more of my reviews, please visit: View all 23 comments. Mar 30, Jill rated it really liked it Shelves: Fearing that Colin Sandhurst, Lord Payne that lazy, aimless, dim-witted rake might have designs on her beautiful, sweet sister, Minerva proposes a plan to Colin whereby both of them will end up winners.
And her sister will be safe from the clutches of an arranged Society marriage. If Colin escorts her to Edinburgh, Scotland and helps with her presentation to the Royal Geological Society, she will give him the monetary prize when she wins.
His dire financial straits will be taken care of. And she will be rewarded with the prestige and recognition for her scientific work that she deserves.
To prevent a scandal, this will all be done under the guise of an elopement. Returning to Spindle Cove where those young ladies that are considered misfits in society are given a chance to heal, grow and thrive, A Week to Be Wicked sees the plain and bookish Minerva paired with the handsome and feckless Colin. Unlike the first in the series though the story is set only initially in Spindle Cove.
This Regency road trip is funny and entertaining with two polar opposites. Intelligent, awkward, bespectacled Minerva, who along with her mother has never expected love or marriage. And charming, roguish, playful Colin who has never wanted love or marriage. The love scenes are steamy with the experienced Colin teaching the highly inquisitive student, Minerva all about the science of love. The unlikely romance between the spinster and the rake grows from an initial sparring of adversaries, to admiration and respect, and finally to love.
This can be read as a stand-alone, but don't shortchange yourself. Read book 1 A Night to Surrender and 1. With such a large number of talented writers of historical romance it's hard to stand out. Yet Tessa Dare is in my opinion one of the best writers of historical romance and certainly one of the best at humourous dialogue and situational comedy.
A Week to Be Wicked is a fun, romantic, steamy read. Highly recommended. View all 39 comments. Feb 19, Heather K dentist in my spare time rated it it was amazing Shelves: Tessa Dare, I needed this today. After years of reading romance, this book, and the one before it A Night to Surrender , might just have converted me to a die-hard historical romance fan.
Honestly, this book was pretty much perfection. I was riveted, entranced, clinging to her every freakin' word! Some female narrators do a terrible male voice which makes the sex scenes sort of But this narrator nailed it, she well and truly nailed it pun intended! What I didn't expect was for this book to be so funny. Even funnier than A Night to Surrender , which was pretty hilarious at times. Just really, really witty stuff. This book was this perfect mix of funny and emotional. I loved the bookish Minerva, and I loved damaged, rakish Colin even more.
They were smoking hot together and had chemistry that flew off the page. Authors, this is how you write complex, well rounded characters. This is how you make a book humorous and passionate and heartfelt.
This is how you write a love story. View all 15 comments. Jul 22, Kimberly Carrington-Fox rated it it was amazing Shelves: View all 5 comments.

Feb 21, Robin Bridge Four rated it really liked it Shelves: I liked this, it was cute it had some really funny moments, some great sexual tension at times and all and all it was fun.
Her mother believes that there is no hope for Minerva. Queue the opening scene to Beauty and the Beast. Diana and Charlotte will do well for themselve I liked this, it was cute it had some really funny moments, some great sexual tension at times and all and all it was fun.
Diana and Charlotte will do well for themselves, but Minerva? Plain, bookish, distracted, awkward with gentlemen. In a word, hopeless. Everyone in the town is convinced that Mr. Collin Payne will soon be asking her beautiful sister Diana to marry him. Minerva wants to save Diana from this torturous future and she also would like to make it to a geological symposium to present her discovery.
Two birds, one stone all she has to do is convince the devilish Mr. Payne to accompany her to Scotland and the symposium. Collin is a rake, but at least he has rules for his rakishness. No virgins and no ruination of society women…. Legends have sprung from less.
All Lancelot did was paddle about in a balmy lake. The bar is higher. In the days they talk getting to know each other and making up fantastical tales for any traveling companions they may find.
You rubbed your I didn't think. I reacted. My favorite banter being how to seduce a woman using mathematical terms. A Week to be Wicked actually made me miss that book and I re-read it in the middle of reading this one. It really had me until the last third of the book when I was really looking for a stronger wrap up of the story and it seemed to wax and wane on. My only other problem was with Collin, it took me a little time to warm up to him. His transition from rake to helplessly needing Minerva went really quickly.
This is still a great cotton candy Historical Romance when you just want to root for the girl who reads while walking. View all 7 comments. Of course the romance was perfect, built from antagonism and lack of expectations, it made for an even better HEA. A man might engage in flirtation with distinterest, even disdain.
But he never teases without affection. I loved how escorted by Colin, Minerva's journey became a total contradiction to her practical, sensible and logical manners.
Light, hilarious, smart and sexy as hell, A Week To Be Wicked was a hell of a page turner and reinforced my absolute love for anything Tessa Dare. I'm ruined! He lay on the bed, freshly shaven and washed, legs crossed at the ankles and arms propped behind his head.

Book 4. Book 1. Because she loved it here. In Spindle Cove, she finally. She leaned forward in her chair. That you have no intentions toward Diana. Is it so inconceivable that I might have changed my mind? Is that the sticking point? She sat forward in her chair. Minerva held up a hand. Minerva wished she could scrub her mind of those poems. But none of us get what we truly deserve in this life. Your mother would be overjoyed. My cousin would send the special license in a trice. We could be married this week.
Throwing off the borrowed greatcoat, she leaped to her feet and began pacing the carpet. The wet folds of her skirt tangled as she strode. It cannot. It will not. She balled her hands in fists. That, and some change. Not the way I live. She bit her lip. It would have been so much easier.
She took a deep breath and lifted her chin. This was it—her last chance to dissuade him. She let the derisive sounds wash over her and simply waited, arms crossed.
Until his laughter dwindled, ending with a choked cough. He drained the wineglass and set it aside. I would have admitted as much, but I know what pleasure you take in pointing out my intellectual shortcomings. Rummaging through the inside pockets of her cloak, she located her copy of the scientific journal. She opened it to the announcement page and held it out for his examination.
A symposium. The one you trudged through the cold, wet dark to make. She bit her tongue to keep from saying it aloud. How lowering, to admit how much his offhand comment thrilled her. High compliment indeed. If you take me there and help present my findings to the Society, you can keep it all. Five hundred guineas would be sufficient to keep you drunk and debauched in London until your birthday, I should hope?
He nodded. I might have to hold off on new boots, but one must make some sacrifices. How could you be certain of winning the prize? I could explain my findings to you in detail, but a great many polysyllabic words would be involved. He gave her a searching look, and Minerva marshaled the strength to hold it. Level, confident, unblinking. After a moment, his eyes warmed with an unfamiliar glimmer. Her heart gave a queer flutter. She thought it might be the nicest thing anyone had ever said to her.
And suddenly, things were different. Melting away her awkwardness. She felt comfortable in her surroundings, and more than a little worldly. As though this were the most natural thing in the world, to be having a midnight conversation in a turret with a half-dressed rake. She settled languidly into the armchair and raised her hands to her hair, finding and plucking loose her few remaining pins.
With slow, dreamy motions, she finger-combed the wet locks and arranged them about her shoulders, the better to dry evenly. A sensuous ribbon of claret swirled into the glass. Not by any stretch of the imagination. But just for the sake of argument, how did you see this proceeding, exactly? Crossing back to her, he peered at the journal. Pet, a viscount does not travel on the mail coach. The more she explained her ideas, the easier the words sprang to her lips and the more excited she grew.
This could work. It could really, truly work. I know. I had no desire for a Society marriage, anyhow. But could it really be so much worse to be cut off from fashionable society, than to feel forever squeezed to its margins? His remark gave her pause. And as for Diana. Then she might make a loving one. He sipped his wine thoughtfully. You have no compunction ruining your reputation, nor those of your sisters.
She touched her index finger. Your name is synonymous with destruction. Bar fights, scandals. Wherever you go, mayhem follows. He gestured with the hand holding the wineglass. His eyes met hers, unguarded and earnest. And a strange thing happened. Minerva believed him. This was one snag she never would have considered. That he might object on principle. But he did, evidently. And he was baring it to her, in an attitude of confidence. As though they were friends, and he trusted her to understand.
The harder I try, the more I get in my own way. And justly so. Having absconded with, then callously discarded, an innocent young lady? Ten minutes ago, she would have expected him to laugh. But things had changed.
